Nasrallah: Israel is weaker than a spider web

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah appeared on TV via video link on Wednesday the day which marks the 11th anniversary of Israel’s 2000 withdrawal from Lebanon.

Israel withdrew on May 25 after 22 years of occupation. Hezbollah was credited by all the Lebanese for liberating south Lebanon but has since fallen from grace by its own hands when it pointed its guns against the Lebanese people after its 2006 war with Israel .

In his speech he slammed Us president Barack Obama and Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu speeches and called on the Arabs to withdraw the 2002 peace initiative . He said that Hezbollah is not afraid of Israeli whom he considered weaker than a spider web.

He urged the Syrians to support President Bashar al Assad and called on the Lebanese not to interfere in the Syrian uprising.

He rejected the concept of a Technocrat cabinet for Lebanon .

He said that he was going to address 3 issues : “the Palestinian issue, the situation in Syria and the developments in Lebanon.

Palestinian issue

I will stress on the recent speeches made by the leaders of occupation: [US President Barack] Obama and [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu.

– I will be brief.

– Liberation Day is not the occasion of a particular party or sect, but a national occasion, and the occasion of Palestinians.

– We are keen on making it a national occasion. If we want to turn it into a national holiday, the Lebanese people will find out about the greatness achieved on May 25, 2000, [which is the date of Israeli withdrawal from South Lebanon].

– What happened on May 25, 2000 changed the face of Lebanon and that of the region.

– Our nation needs triumphs in order to get rid of the [negative effects] of Nakba Day.

– When we see the stances that Obama and Netanyahu have taken, we become more certain of our beliefs.

– The developments in the last three decades proved that the correct choice and the realistic one is that of the ‘popular armed Resistance.’

– The unrealistic, maddening, depressing…humiliating choice is that of negotiations.

– If we [made concessions in the 1980s], our territory would have been occupied by now. Israel would have built settlements that will have reach as far as the Litany river.

– But the Resistance, through its sacrifices, has managed to excluded these possibilities and has brought our land back [to us].

– [There is a] strategy used by [the Israelis] to make the Arabs think that their only option is to run away. In 2000, the Israelis were the ones that ran away. In 2000, the equation changed.

– Israel, in the eyes of the world, is no longer unbeatable.

– Yesterday, I saw the fear in Netanyahu’s eyes when he was speaking to the US Congress about Hezbollah and Gaza’s rockets.

– I will move to the Palestinian issue: What did Obama and Netanyahu leave for the Palestinian Authority?

– Obama, [on Sunday], reiterated his country’s commitment to Israeli security.

– Obama rejected the establishment of a Palestinian state and the reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas Movement.

– His earlier speech about establishing a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders did not even last for 2 days [before he changed his mind].

– About Netanyahu, the Americans stood and applauded for him in Congress, which means that all of the [US] parties support Netanyahu. Yesterday, all of the US was called Netanyahu.

– After Netanyahu’s Tuesday demands from the Palestinians, what is left for those when they go to negotiations? See the lies [of Israel].

– Yesterday, Obama and Netanyahu, both, launched a final strike against the [2002] Arab Peace Initiative.

– I call on the Arab League to withdraw the Arab Peace Initiative after Obama and Netanyahu’s speeches.

– We should be a nation that rejects negotiations and [only] backs the Resistance.

– Again, on May 25, on the Day of Liberation, I tell you, the Palestinians only have the choice of Resistance to liberate their territory.

– I call on the entire nation to adopt the choice of the Resistance, because what is happening is not a threat against the Palestinians only, but against the [Arab] nation as a whole.

Hezbollah involvement in Arab Spring

– Moving on, I would like to comment on some rumors about the developments happening in the Arab world [and about Hezbollah’s involvement in the events occurring in other Middle Eastern countries]. This is not true.

– There are reports that Hezbollah members are fighting in Yemen or in other countries. Also, about Syria, there are reports, namely on Al-Arabiya television, they broadcast that Hezbollah sent 3500 fighters to Damascus [in order to suppress the anti-regime protests]. This is unfounded.

– Those newswires, such as the Lebanese Forces website, said that there are Hezbollah members deployed as snipers on the roofs of buildings in Syria.

– Denying these reports is very important: I tell all those liars in the media and journalists who write after having been funded by [the US], I tell them that the events happening in the Arab world are not our responsibility.

– But, in case we deploy our fighters in other countries, we, in Hezbollah, have the courage to publically announce where our fighters are deployed.

– Secondly, our party’s standpoint regarding the Arab revolutions is based on two issues: the country’s stance on the Arab-Israeli conflict and the degree of corruption in the country.

– In all cases, the people of these states [witnessing protests] know better. All we look for is to attain a certain degree of harmony between the Arab states and their people and to have these governments [willing] to fulfill the needs of their people.

– However, we need to warn that Israeli and the US want to confiscate [the process of decision making in the Arab world].

– Yesterday, [Israeli PM Benjamin] Netanyahu insulted all Arabs when he said that 300 million Arabs do not benefit from democracy but that there are one million Arabs in Israel that benefit from democracy.

– We tell Netanyahu: no.

– We, in Lebanon, have democracy and freedom.

– The US should respect the will of the people and withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan.

– I tell the people to beware of the US policies in the region.

Syria

– Regarding the Syrian developments: Syria in Lebanon has offered a lot, it prevented the country from falling into a divide and helped strongly to preserve national unity in Lebanon.

– Syria backed Lebanon and its Resistance. We cannot forget how much Syria embraced Lebanon.

– When we express our concerns about Syria, we express our concerns about its regime and its people and we would worry about what is being plotted against Syria and its people.

– Secondly, the position of Syria in relation to Israel and the resilience of Syria.

– Thirdly, Syria’s position in light of the [US] project of a new Middle East.

– Also, our stance regarding Syria takes into account the regime’s willingness to make reforms.

– We believe that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad believes in reform and is willing to achieve it, providing this issue happens peacefully.

– There is data that proves that the majority of the Syrian people still support the regime.

– Bringing down the Syrian regime benefits Israel and the US.

– Our standpoint with regard to the Syrian developments also takes into account Lebanese Syrian relations and Lebanon’s commitments to Syria, including the Taif Accord.

– These factors impose on all of us, to take the following standpoint:

– Firstly, to be devoted to the security of Syria, its regime and its people.

– Secondly, to call on the Syrians to preserve their regime and give it a chance to achieve reforms and opt for dialogue.

– Thirdly, to not interfere in what is going on in Syria and allow the Syrians to manage their affairs on their own.

– Fourthly, to reject any sanctions promoted by the West against Syria and have a firm Lebanese stance regarding this issue.

– Lebanon should not in any way stab Syria and be subject to US interests.

Lebanese situation

– I move on to the Lebanese developments: I stop at the accusations of Obama that Hezbollah carries out political assassinations.

– The US aggression against Hezbollah is nothing new.

– Those comments are not based on any evidence and come to confirm what is plotted by means of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) [probing the 2005 assassination of former PM Rafik Hariri].

– We thank Obama for speaking on the behalf of the STL.

– When a killer [the US] stands to accuse us of murder, do not bother. Obama did not accuse us [of murder] but issued a verdict against us.

– When an enemy launches [verbal] attacks against us, we are proud of that, because it means that we have an importance in the equation.

– About the formation of a new Lebanese cabinet [headed by PM-designate Najib Mikati], one of the benefits of the delay in the cabinet formation is that it shows you how much [Hezbollah’s rivals] deal with the party.

– When the cabinet of [outgoing PM Saad Hariri] collapsed [in January], [the Western-backed March 14] parties accused Hezbollah of staging a coup. But now they stopped making such statements.

– The delay shows that there is no coup because the cabinet has not been formed yet.

– It is not true that Hezbollah wants to control the Lebanese government.

– Second, there are foreign and US demands [placed on the parties concerned in the formation of the cabinet].

– Why did US Ambassador to Lebanon Maura Connelly visit Mikati and President Michel Sleiman? This is to remind that there is [US] pressure exerted on the cabinet formation.

– [Saad Hariri’s] cabinet was formed after five months of delay and not more because Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad personally intervened to speed up the cabinet formation.

– If we look at the March 14 stances, whatever happens, they accuse Hezbollah of obstructing the state or of delaying the cabinet formation.

– This shows you that the rival parties have already taken an anticipated position [against Hezbollah]. They always hold us responsible.

– I would like to say that we believe in the need to form a cabinet soon and that the cabinet is the basic institution designed to resolve problems occurring in the country.

– We also act based on the idea of a strong and responsible cabinet and because we do not want a substitute for the [Lebanese] state. We are the first Resistance that triumphs [against Israel] and does not demand shares in the government.

– We will keep on making efforts and we will not give up, but we will not pressure anyone. Eventually, there will be a result and dialogue with our allies will take us there.

– In a country like Lebanon, no majority can exclusively rule.

– There should be a ‘protected political cabinet’ or a national unity cabinet in the country. We reject the formation of a technocratic cabinet because Lebanon is a political country.

– We support Speaker Nabih Berri’s call to convene the parliament [before the new cabinet is formed].

– The Resistance will remain. We are not afraid of Obama, Netanyahu or anyone. Yesterday, Netanyahu increased our convictions [in the strength of] our rockets.

– I tell Netanyahu, who is scared of these missiles, that the rockets are not just 12,000. They exist and will remain. No one in Lebanon, or in the world will ever be able to take these rockets away from us.

– Those rocket are our money and dignity. This Resistance will remain loyal to its past and to the blood of its martyrs, and I repeat , on May 25, 2011, the time of victories has come and that of losses has faded away.

– After 11 years [of liberation], I tell you that Israel is weaker than a spider web.

– We can see that we are closer to achieving victory and the US and Israel’s [agenda] in the region will not yield results. Now Lebanon

        He is a man of peace. Just not peace on Israel’s terms which are always humiliating. He would rather a peace that deal that sees all problems settled equally. Then, as he has said himself, HA’s arms will be turned over to the state, as they will no longer be needed.

        • Wait a sec! I might buy into the notion that  HA wants all the stuff u are saying (at least they might believe so) but to believe that HA would at any point hand over its weapons is a joke.. It will never happen! If HA drops its weapons its over as a power house which they will NEVER allow:
          I quote the following
          “I tell Netanyahu, who is scared of these missiles, that the rockets are not just 12,000. They exist and will remain. No one in Lebanon, or in the world will ever be able to take these rockets away from us.”

            Now you’re playing with the context. He said in case of attack, not only will he repel Israel, but for once take the fight into northern Israel. He did not say he was planning on taking the North unprovoked.

            fighting them,” he told [the New Yorker]. ‘Our goal is to liberate the
            1948 borders of Palestine …The Jews who survive this war of liberation can go back to Germany or wherever they came from.’ He added, however, that the Jews who lived
            in Palestine before 1948 will be ‘allowed to live as a minority and
            they will be cared for by the Muslim majority.'”

      Resistance in 2000 freed Lebanon of Israeli occupation. Resistance in 2006, against a country that was no longer occupying it, brought horrible destruction on Lebanon.

      Might I remind you that it’s no longer a resistance to the occupation. It’s a resistance to my existence.

    It’s funny how Hezbollah talks all this nonsense about Israel, yet when the war broke out in 2006, and UN offered ceasefire. Hezbollah said “Ceasefire!

    If Israel is a spider-web.

    Don’t call me a Zionist you March 8ers, i oppose Zionism more than your shameful party. But face the facts and wake up from your dreams. Israel manufactures their own rockets, tanks, guns, nuclear weapons. Hezbollah relies on Iran for weaponry. Do they honestly think an AK-47 and Katushya Rocket is going to make them advance and so call “Liberate” the Galilee and Jerusalem? Time for people to wake up.

          @eblashko:disqus  Never have I said on this website that we are different.  I always say that Arabs are semites too and not just Jews, and that I don’t categorize myself based on ethnicity or religion. Even if our clultures conflicted like a Chinese would to a Frenchman, I wouldn’t make distinctions based on that.

          The reason I oppose the Israeli governments actions has nothing to do with their religious or ethnic background. Recall: If Lebanon was doing to the Israelis what Israel was doing to the Palestinians, I’d rally against Lebanon because I’m for human rights for EVERYONE.

        • eblashko

          “If Lebanon was doing to the Israelis what Israel was doing to the Palestinians, I’d rally against Lebanon because I’m for human rights for EVERYONE.”

          I guess the policy of the government is that they will never let it get to that point. (vis-a-vis the Palestinians, not you). Hamas, who according to the 2005 election results, represents the majority of the Palestinian people, has yet to say that they would recognize Israel, ever stop the “resistance”, or agree to permanently end the conflict.

          I know you don’t like Hamas, but like it or not, the Palestinians do. And that means that they aren’t willing to accept our presence here, as similar as we are. I’m sure you heard a few months ago a settler family was killed in Itamar. I mean brutally murdered. The killer snuck in at night and slit the throats of the parents and 3 children while they were sleeping, one of them only 3 months old. In Gaza, there were celebrations in the streets, they gave out candies, just like they do every time there’s a suicide bomb or a rocket successfully hits a civilian target. Are these not violations of our human rights?

          Your misconception is that as terrible as Hamas’s acts of terror are, you think that this is happening in response to the occupation, when in reality, it was happening long before the occupation, and if it weren’t for the occupation, it would be happening a lot more often and a lot more Jews would be dying. Which boils down to the main point… the source of the problem is not the occupation, it’s the never-ending “resistance” which necessitates it.

          Like Egypt in Sinai in 1979. Sadat was serious about peace. We happily withdrew from land and from settlements in order to achieve it, and there have been no problems ever since. There are no leaders on the Palestinian side like Sadat. That is the source of the problem, not the occupation.

          It’s very convenient to talk about the Arab peace initiative, and the PA’s willingness to talk, but if the Palestine papers taught as anything, it’s that even though Olmert was wiling to give back almost everything, the Palestinians still became furious about it when the papers became public. Why? Because the Palestinian PEOPLE will never accept us here and will never give up resistance… and until they do… for me and my future children to have any chance of survival here, the occupation must continue. Otherwise, we would be signing our own death sentences.

          And if you really care about human rights, why not petition the government of Lebanon to start treated “their” Palestinians like people instead of like animals.

            eblasko,The “Palestinians” are truly a made up people.As a matter of fact,I challenge you to post a history of the palestinians such as their leaders,Newspaper articles (B-4 1948),filmed news reports,etc.I know you won`t because you can`t.Why wasn`t there a “Palestinian Problem” when Jordan controlled Judea,Samaria and Jerusalem? Please don`t get me wrong,God loves all Arabs as much as he does the Jews but truly,b4 1948 there wasn`t this problem.Arafat started the Myth of “The Palestinian Peoples”.

          And if you really care about human rights, why not petition the government of Lebanon to start treated “their” Palestinians like people instead of like animals.

          You really think Olmert was willing to give everything? Also, how on earth can you say that the Palestinians like Hamas, Gaza’s population represents a tiny portion of Palestinians, and most Palestinians I’ve met DON’T like Hamas. How many Palestinians do you know, and how many of them like Hamas?
           
          You have to stop making such statements based on what CNN is showing you on TV. You’re making some terribly inaccurate statements.
           
          How can the occupation not be the problem? The resistance exists because of the occupation. If there was no occupation, there would be no resistance. Why would anyone have a resistance if there was no occupation.  Hamas hate Jews, yes, but the reason they were elected is because Gaza is imprisoned, and people want to get rid fo the occupier/oppressor, not because they’re all anti-semetic.
           
          Also, when Israel does these actions and tells the world it’s due to the preservation of the Jews, it’s going to incite anti-semitism to those who are suffering, because they are victims of war crims, and international law violations in teh name of a religion.

          Put yourself in the Gazan’s shoes.

          Kareem, I respectively need to disagree with each one of your points:

          “You really think Olmert was willing to give everything?”

          Yes. Absolutely. The Palestine Papers and Olmert’s memoirs have shown how far his Kadima government was willing to go: 1967 borders with 1:1 swaps, division of Jerusalem, and a tunnel between Gaza and the West Bank. The pen was in Abu Mazan’s hand. But he could not bring himself to sign. Nobody on either side denies this.

          “Also, how on earth can you say that the Palestinians like Hamas, Gaza’s population represents a tiny portion of Palestinians”

          In 2006, as you said, there was a legitimate and transparent election in the territories. Hamas won. That is not an opinion and not CNN, it’s a FACT. The Palestinians voted for Hamas. They beat Fatah by 30,000 votes. Not just Gaza, but all the territories. Hamas wants to destroy Israel. That means the majority of Palestinians voted to destroy Israel. Inarguable point.

          ” but the reason they were elected is because Gaza is imprisoned, and people want to get rid fo the occupier/oppressor, not because they’re all anti-semetic”

          Gaza was not imprisoned when they were elected. It was actually the freest part of Palestine. Gazans were much better off then than they are now. In 2005, we left Gaza. If they had voted differently, Gaza could be a paradise right now, but they chose to use our withdrawal from Gaza as a pretext for more aggression. It was after our withdrawal that the rockets and kidnappings started, and it was after the kidnappings and rockets (and their bloody coup against Fatah) that the blockade started.

          “The resistance exists because of the occupation. If there was no occupation, there would be no resistance.”

          Arabs have been attacking Jews in Israel since the beginning of Zionism, long before the occupation. Massacres by Arabs against Jews occurred in the British Mandate in 1920, 1929, and 1936. In 1948, every Arab nation declared war on Israel and invaded. Egypt and Syria waged a war of attrition throughout the 50’s and 60’s, shelling and shooting at our farmers and fishermen from the borders. In 1967, Egypt blocked our red sea access and amassed a force on the border, which is what prompted the six-day war, for which their was legal causus belli. All of this unprovoked hostility (a.k.a resistance) happened BEFORE the occupation. Not just that, but before 1967, Arafat and the Palestinians claimed all of Palestine EXCEPT Gaza and the West Bank. Likewise, the residents of the West Bank and Gaza didn’t have any issue with the “occupation” of their lands by Jordan and Egypt. This is because, until 1967, it was never about establishing a Palestinian state, which could have been done at any time between 1948 and 1967, but about erasing a Jewish state, and Palestinians have not done anything to assuage our fears of this still being the case.

          I hope I’ve made it clear that hostility to Israel, what you call resistance, has been around long before the occupation. And since the occupation, Israel has been, on a whole, much safer and more secure than it was before the occupation. I hope I’ve also made it clear that most Palestinians have shown, by voting for Hamas, that they are unwilling to ever stop the resistance, even if the occupation is ended.

          “Also, when Israel does these actions and tells the world it’s due to the preservation of the Jews, it’s going to incite anti-semitism to those who are suffering”

          I agree, but again, I’d rather be alive and hated by Gazans than be dead.

          @eblashko:disqus  Never have I said on this website that we are different.  I always say that Arabs are semites too and not just Jews, and that I don’t categorize myself based on ethnicity or religion. Even if our clultures conflicted like a Chinese would to a Frenchman, I wouldn’t make distinctions based on that.

          The reason I oppose the Israeli governments actions has nothing to do with their religious or ethnic background. Recall: If Lebanon was doing to the Israelis what Israel was doing to the Palestinians, I’d rally against Lebanon because I’m for human rights for EVERYONE.

        • Anonymous

          “If Lebanon was doing to the Israelis what Israel was doing to the
          Palestinians, I’d rally against Lebanon because I’m for human rights for
          EVERYONE. ”

          I guess the policy of the government is that is never gets to that point. (vis-a-vis the Palestinians, not you). Hamas, who according to the 2005 election results, represents the majority of the Palestinians people, has yet to say that they would recognize Israel, ever stop the “resistance”, or agree to permanently end the conflict.

          I know you don’t like Hamas, but the Palestinians do. And that means that they aren’t willing to accept our presence here, as similar as we are. I’m sure you heard a few months ago a settler family was killed in Itamar. I mean brutally murdered. The killer snuck in at night and slit the throats of the parents and 3 children while they were sleeping, one of them only 3 months old. In Gaza, there were celebrations in the streets, they gave out candies, just like they do every time there’s a suicide bomb or a rocket successfully hits a civilian target. Are these violations of human rights?

          Your misconception is that as terrible as this khara is, you think that this is happening in response to the occupation, when in reality, it was happening long before the occupation, and if it weren’t for the occupation, it would be happening a lot more often. Which boils down to the main point… the source of the problem is not the occupation, it’s the never-ending “resistance” which necessitates it.

          Like Egypt in Sinai in 1979. Sadat was serious about peace. We happily withdrew from land and from settlements in order to achieve it, and there have been no problems ever since. There are no leaders on the Palestinian side like Sadat. That is the source of the problem, not the occupation.

          It’s very convenient to talk about the Arab peace initiative, and the PA’s willingness to talk, but if the Palestine papers taught as anything, it’s that even though Olmert was wiling to give back almost everything, the Palestinians still became furious about it when the papers became public. Why? Because the Palestinian PEOPLE will never accept us here and will never give up resistance… and until they do… for me and my future children to have any chance of survival here, the occupation must continue. Otherwise, we would be signing our own death sentences.

            eblasko,The “Palestinians” are truly a made up people.As a matter of fact,I challenge you to post a history of the palestinians such as their leaders,Newspaper articles (B-4 1948),filmed news reports,etc.I know you won`t because you can`t.Why wasn`t there a “Palestinian Problem” when Jordan controlled Judea,Samaria and Jerusalem? Please don`t get me wrong,God loves all Arabs as much as he does the Jews but truly,b4 1948 there wasn`t this problem.Arafat started the Myth of “The Palestinian Peoples”.

    to be formed quickly, he can do that by lifting a little finger, but it looks like he hasn’t received yet any
    orders from his boss in Iran.

    Do not read what he says, turn your radio/tv off when he speaks, do not buy newspapers with his picture on, do not comment on articles related to him, (unless you’re repeating this message)! That is what he is most afraid of! that people who don’t like him stop listening to what he has to say. He doesn’t write his speeches to the goats who follow him blindly, he writes them for people who use their brains knowing they’re waiting to read and criticize which is an opportunity for him to send his dirty messages and threats. This is how we can silence him once and for all!!! IT WORKS! TRY IT!!!

      how can I? As I am a person with a strong sense of justice, and to me he’s the one person standing up to the arrogance and injustice commited by the apartheid state of israel.

      • ralphsrouji

        if you truely are a person with a strong sense of justice you will also recognize the injustice delivered by this man against his own people. Israelis are killing Palestinians (and vice-versa), but this man is killing his own people just because they disagree with his views. Don’t BS us with your “strong sense of justice”, where is justice when he goes against the bahrainis and supports bashar killing syrians on the streets or ahmadinejad killing and torturing thousands, where is Justice when he goes on a rampage in beirut and the shouf just because other Lebanese wanted to cut an ILLEGAL phone network and remove ILLEGAL surveillance cams from the airport. The fact that he is fighting Israel is no longer an excuse that absolves him from all his crimes! I’ll accept that you call Israel an apartheid state if you also recognize that the regimes in Iran, Syria and Hizballah are appartheid states/organization. That would be justice!

    Ah, shut up..

    Like Lebanon can afford a war between two violent gangs again.. last time that happened 3% of our population got killed.
    Oh, and I won’t take back what I said about both Hezbollah and the Israeli army being violent gangs. They sure act like them in war

    At least someone in this wicked world has the guts to stand up to the injustice being commited by Israel. In the movies the hero stands with and protects the defenseless and the weak, in real life I guess most stand with the strong. The ones that don’t are now being called terrorists.

    • eblashko

      They’re called terrorists because their intention is to harm civilians.

      Munich Olympics
      Entebbe Airport
      Buenos Aires Synagogue
      Suicide bombs on buses and in clubs
      Katyushas and Qassam rockets

      These were attacks on normal Israeli people, not the government or the military. That, by definition is terrorist.

        Attacks like these by the government is called “state terrorism”
        When Israel bombs a school in Gaza held by the UN, that is state terrorism.
        When Israel blocks borders illegally, causing the starvation of Palestinians in Gaza, that’s state terrorism.
        When Israel goes into Gaza and destroys almost all food production farms, that’s state terrorism.

        Don’t get me wrong, I think those other non-government terrorists exist and I call them terrorists, but I believe in state terrorism too.

        When Hitler slaughtered millions of Jews, Communists, Gypsies, and non-Arians, that was state terrorism.
        When Bashar Al Assad kills over 1000 of his own people, that’s state terrorism.

        Israel did waht they did for their security, but you could say the same about what the others did. Both did what they did as a form of intimidation and to spread fear to the opposing party.

        Different label, same action

  • kareemthehippy

    Gotta love how he’s supporting the country that once armed their best friends who used to be their enemies in the Civil War! That’ll be like America arming Hamas 10 years from now, who are now allies with Israel’s conservatives! Oh the irony 🙂

    • eblashko

      In the 80’s. Israel armed Hamas to fight the PLO. America armed Sadaam to fight Iran and the Taliban to fight the Soviets.

      The world is a very different place 30 years later.

      • kareemthehippy

        Yup, but that doesnt mean we blind people into thinking that there were no ironic links

        How many people know that Israel armed Hamas to fight the PLO, when they now are doing the opposite?
        People think Hamas came about because of hatred for Israel and Israel have been struggling with them ever since!  It gives a different perspective on things!

        Just because it’s the past doesn’t mean it needs to be forgotten! The Civil War in Lebanon is the past, nobody has forgotten about it. Same goes with teh Holocaust. Why do people celebrate independence day? It happened ni the past didn’t it, but it’s SIGNIFICANT, so we remember it, and take it into consideration.

        You know what? Maybe 30 years from now, we might as well forget abotu the Rwandan genocide or what’s happening in Syria now..I mean it is the past right? Lol

        • eblashko

          Whoah whoah, Chill out dude. Take it easy. I’m not saying we should forget the past, or defending whatever is written in the article. I’m just saying that it’s ironic how much the world has changed in 30 years, that’s all. Wasn’t meant as an attack or anything.

    all the problems that syria,s having now because of hassan nasrallah,s behavior  
    if syria would have distanced itself from him , or  and got rid of nasrallah,  bashar,s would,nt have had all those problems now. isn,it a waist when a civilized president like asad, a greatbritain educated man , sacrifice himself and his country and his people for the interrest of iran?if iran cared so much about arab sates and palestinian cause why did they steal iraqi land the shatt el arab and the iraqui oil fields .? this persian conspiracy are a bunch of liers they are there in the middleeast only to conquer and invade arabic states, so they could form there persian empire.

    Oh Yah! And where is the Itzy Bitzy spider hiding these days? who the hell you think you are? This is not Iran and will never be Iran. You treat Lebanon and Palestine as if its part of your territories.. Stop addressing the Lebanese and stop acting as if you’re somebody. Your end will come soon with the Syrian regime. That’s why you’re afraid of it falling and not because you love Assad and appreciate what he did for you and not Lebanon. Assad destroyed Lebanon as much as Israel and if not more. You’re pathetic and unpatriotic lunatic and freaking bastard. Lebanon will not be part of Iran. Its not in the benefit of Israel and the US and the West that Lebanon to become one. Therefore with your ever destructive attitude Israel will wipe out Lebanon because of you and your gangs to make sure you will never lift a finger against them again. Rest in Peace wherever you are or rather Hell I should say..

    Remember how early during the Iraq-Iran war in 1982 Israel destroyed Saddam Hussein’s Osirak, Iraq nuclear reactor. This benefited Iran more than Israel since Hussein would have eventually used nuclear arms against Iran. Too bad Iran wants to destroy Israel so badly after Israel saved it during this time so that these Iranians are big ingrates.

    Forget the ‘spider web’ silly comment. There’s enough lines there to work on … this could become the longest ‘bloggers delight’ yet. ;-)))))
    Can we start with … perhaps … “We, in Lebanon, have democracy and freedom.”
    Maybe just let the women weigh in on that one ….. again.
    Anyone seen any change in three months? Let alone 2 years?? 😉
